Data Analytics Add Cooperative Element With Credit Union App Store

Recently, OnApproach launched the Credit Union App Store (CU App Store). The CU App Store is the online marketplace for credit unions to discover and immediately access applications designed to solve a variety of business problems, and improve data and analytical capabilities for all credit unions.

The CU App Store creates efficiencies throughout the industry, bringing together credit unions, CUSOs, and industry vendors to share the time and resource burden required to execute high value reporting and analytics, regardless of technology or core. By utilizing the CU App Store, credit unions have the opportunity to shift their time from report creation to consumption and analysis of useful information.

“The CU App Store is just one more way that OnApproach is making data analytics accessible to credit unions of all sizes,” said Network Service Corporation and TruLync Chief Operations Officer John Ferstl. “As the proven technology partner for OA M360, TruLync is excited to pair the CU App Store with our service bureau model, allowing employees at all levels of an organization to turn data into action.”

TruLync Service Bureau applies the cooperative model to data analytics: allowing more credit unions to participate by minimizing the cost associated with increasing staff and building and maintaining an infrastructure in-house. TruLync is OnApproach’s proven technology partner for hosting the M360 product and is the solution for dynamic report writing services. TruLync was also a proud sponsor of the AXFI conference.

Within the CU App Store, credit unions can access the site and shop for pre-built applications. “Applications” refers to reports, dashboards, or models that cover a range of credit union needs, including categories such as Audit, Channels, Compliance, Deposits, Financials, Investments, Lending, Management, Marketing, Memberships, and Payments. The applications currently available are free to credit unions and compatible with the OnApproach CU Analytics Ecosystem. In addition, credit unions will be able to easily share with or sell to their peers the applications they have built. The site also features applications developed by fintech companies and solutions providers.
